SAP Australia has been recognised as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards 2016.

SAP is a leading enterprise application software company specialising in distinct solutions for small businesses, midsized companies and global organisations. Whilst SAP operates globally in more than 190 countries, SAP Australia and New Zealand is predominately a sales and delivery organisation. As such SAP employees in Australia assist in the areas of HR, legal, marketing, IT, facilities and procurement.

SAP’s management model acts as a unifying framework that defines their organisational activities and performance measurement processes. This model is characterised by a ‘Run Simple’ operating principle, which begins with leadership and focuses on collaboration and reduced complexity. This extends to SAP’s commitment to maintaining an engaged and diverse workforce that they are able to retain through the promotion of best practice human resources management.

SAP have made it their mission to transform their entire operation into a global “Learning Culture” where everyone is both a teacher and a learner. As such, the company have created an extensive learning curriculum that’s available via an online platform called SuccessMap. This platform allows employees to make the most of innovative cloud technology to learn anytime, anywhere through the use of mobile devices. The platform tracks employee development plans, which provides a comprehensive avenue for performance reviews in conjunction with managers. This then ties in closely to remuneration and rewards programs, which include schemes that encompass share options and independently competitive benefits programs.

This program is regularly evaluated through employee surveys and includes flexible working options, health education and cultural diversity education that embodies an “Embrace Differences” commitment.
